9781579653170: Biba's Italy: Favorite Recipes from the Splendid Cities

Here is the very best food from our very favorite cities—the glorious dining destinations Rome, Florence, Bologna, Milan, and Venice—brought to life by one of the most authoritative authors in the field. The 100 delicious, simple recipes range from time-honored home-cooking traditions to restaurant classics and even startling innovations by Italy’s star chefs, and are accompanied by invaluable cooking tips and rich, evocative atmosphere. And each chapter offers travel tips galore—on the best restaurants, wine bars, gelatarie, and markets—as well as eminently useful reference sections on ingredients and menus. Biba’s Italy will at turns transport you to a canal-side caffè in Venice and a bustling outdoor market in medieval Bologna, to a chic Milanese ristorante and the lively streets in Rome and cozy enoteca in Florence. Then lure you back home to re-create these experiences in your own kitchen.

Review:

Author of Trattoria Cooking among other cookbooks, PBS personality Biba Caggiano provides Italian recipes that are authentic, approachable and delicious. In Biba's Italy she offers 125-plus formulas from Rome, Florence, Bologna, Milan and Venice--among the great food centers in a country devoted to good eating. The book provides definitive versions of old favorites, including Stuffed Artichokes Roman Style; Potato Gnocchi with Classic Bolognese Ragù; and Roasted Pork with Rosemary, Sage and Garlic, as well as recipes for more innovative fare, such as Chestnut-Flour Tagliatelle with Mushrooms, and Prawns with Cannellini, Rosemary and Hot Pepper, plus formulas for a few homey sweets. Included also are reminiscences of the restaurants that yielded the recipes plus wine and dining information for those wishing to retrace Caggiano's steps. Photo-illustrated, the book excels by offering a superior, easy-to-do repertoire for both everyday and special occasion cooking--one that all cooks will use. --Arthur Boehm
